We move on to part two of our discussion of J.R.R. Tolkien and his works. This time we talk about Tolkien’s love of language, and how that makes for a more convincing world and makes it more interesting to read. We also discuss diversity within Lord of the Rings, modern interpretations of the text, the overall theme of the story, and the character assassination of Faramir.

As this is part two of a single recording, there is no five-minute controversy this week.

This week Anji, Stephanie, and Bree stay with the cast.
